CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) -

Though we were not seeing as many clouds in the sky today, the sky itself was still very difficult to be seen. Heavy smoke was seen throughout the state. All of the smoke in the sky made things look blurry in the distance. Many people have sensitivities to smoky conditions, so today was not the day to spend much time outdoors.

With all of the smoke, several Air Quality Warnings are continuing today and into tomorrow. The southeast corner has the Air Quality Warning in effect until Sunday (tomorrow) at 12:15PM.

As we continue with the trend of warmer temperatures and drier conditions, Fire Weather Warnings are going to continue being in place. Today, there is a Fire Weather Warning for the southwest corner until Monday at 8PM.
